Poor Dears At U Of Iowa Terribly Upset By Anti-Racist Art Piece. Makeup Tests For Everyone!

Even the far-left liberal blog Wonkette says you don't get a free pass over art that bothers you
The University of Iowa has urged faculty members to let students miss or re-take tests if they were upset over some campus art that was SUPER RACIST (because it addressed racism). Apparently some students were so broken up over either the artwork itself — or the controversy surrounding its removal by the university — that they simply couldn’t get their schoolwork done. Letting students ignore their assignments because they had really strong feelings about a work of art strikes us as maybe a bad idea?

Tennessee Lawmaker Lady Named Butt Not Racist, Just Loves White People

Gather round, little children, your Tennessee Wonkette has a nice story for you! It is about one of our august state representatives, a gentlelady by the name of Sheila Butt, who once said there would be no global warming if we used more hairspray, but this is not about that. This is about the fact that Sheila is Not Racist. Everybody is being mean to her and saying she is racist, though, because she went on the Facebook recently to comment on a nice note from the Council on American-Islamic Relations encouraging Republicans to stop hating Muslims so much. Butt said what we REALLY NEED is a “Council on Christian Relations” and a “NAAWP,” which some dumb liberal media types are dumbly and liberally assuming might stand for National Association For The Advancement Of White People, but they are wrong.

Alabama Continues To Reel From Tyrannical Federal Gay Marriage Over-Reach-Around

So it is Wednesday, the third day since Alabama was victimized by a gratuitous federal over-reach-around that required the state to allow gay marriage, even in the really wingnut parts. Let’s look at the Alabammy gay sexy news that has happened since we last updated you on their tantrums, yesterday, when the great majority of probate judges were simply saying, “don’t care about the Constitution, sorry, have you met us?” Read more on Alabama Continues To Reel From Tyrannical Federal Gay Marriage Over-Reach-Around…

You Know Who Needs To Rebrand? The KKK, Which Is All About Love

white fang
Let’s face it: while white supremacy and racism is still pretty popular in the United States, actually SAYING you’re a white supremacist racist is manifestly UNpopular, and looks to remain that way for a little while at least. So you really can’t blame the Ku Klux Klan for its recent PR and rebranding campaign, in which they desperately insist that they aren’t racists because how gauche, unfashionable, and completely unmarketable. Instead of being known as a group that hates everyone who isn’t white for not being white, they want to be known as a group that loves white people for being white. The latest salvo in this rather pathetic campaign is this billboard Klan affiliate The Knights Party has erected in the town of Harrison, Arkansas. Read more on You Know Who Needs To Rebrand?

The 2014 Suckages of CNN, Ranked

Good job, CNN
People say a lot of stupid things. And throughout all of 2014, you’d be hard-pressed to find more people saying stupider things in one place than on CNN. From racist segments making fun of primitive natives to giving airtime to every headcase with no obvious spelling errors on their handmade cardboard signs, 2014 was the year CNN went from bad to embarrassing to just really sad. If CNN really still is “America’s Most Trusted Name in News,” then we are so screwed. Read more on The 2014 Suckages of CNN, Ranked…

House Majority Whip Once Spoke At White Supremacist Convention, Is That A Big Deal?

We hope Rep. Steve Scalise (R-Land of Bobby Jindal) enjoyed his six months as House Majority Whip, because we have a feeling his glorious reign is coming to an end. Call it unfair if you must — and if you’re super blogger Chuck C. Johnson, apparently you must — but when you get busted for having once been the featured speaker at a convention of white supremacists and neo-Nazis, resigning your post as the third-highest-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives feels like the natural next step.

Missouri KKK Just Thrilled To Bits About Coming Ferguson Race War

DC stands with Ferguson
A Missouri-based affiliate of the Ku Klux Klan is circulating a clumsily designed flier vowing to “use lethal force as provided under Missouri Law to defend ourselves” from “terrorists masquerading as ‘peaceful protestors,'” reports Vice News.

KKK Guy Still Likes KKK, Except For All That White Supremacist Stuff

Well, this is weird. Seems there is a Klansman up in Montana — coincidentally the new stomping ground of the Editrix, her boy toy and their love fetus — who wants to rebrand the KKK as a nice fraternal organization without all that white supremacism. Because if any one thing has truly kept the KKK from being a leading civic organization, it’s all that opposition to white folks mixing with the mongrel hordes.

Mayor Pretty Sure Atheists Are Just Like Nazis Or The KKK, Take Your Pick

Perhaps if you are a small-town mayor, you crave recognition. You just want someone to know you’re there, that you’re master of your tiny-ish domain. And any publicity is good publicity, right? So why not engage in a really cartoonish level of textbook bad behavior about religion and free speech, making it a foregone conclusion that the ACLU will sue your pants off? That’s really the only explanation we can think of to account for Jim Fouts, mayor of Warren, Michigan, who decided that he should compare atheists to Nazis and KKK members after they had the goddamn gall to ask to set up a little atheist chat-type thing next to the town’s Jesus station that lives in City Hall.

What Is The World Coming To When This Nice Klansman Can’t Stay In His Neighborhood Watch Group?

We used to think that neighborhood watch groups were nothing but those busybody ladies that twitch the curtain aside to snoop on neighbors and call the cops 25 times per night on the 4th of July to complain about fireworks. Then, of course, we met George Zimmerman and realized that neighborhood watch people can also be creepy racist vigilantes. Yay? Continuing in that not-actually-grand tradition, we have Mr. William Walters, Grand Dragon of the East Coast Knights of the True Invisible Empire, which the rest of us know as the Ku Klux Klan. Mr. Walters is very sad because he was informed his services would no longer be required in his local neighborhood watch group, mainly because he had a pesky habit of using his participation in the group to try to recruit new Klansmen.

CNN Looks Into Whether KKK Can Rebrand As Kinder, Kooler, Kuddlier, Possibly With Happy Meals

On Sunday, CNN finally found something other than Flight 370 to be blindingly stupid about, asking whether, in the wake of the murders of three people at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas last week by racist and anti-Semite Frazier Glenn Miller, it might be possible for the Ku Klux Klan to “rebrand” itself. Spoiler: After consulting with a number of marketing experts, they decided that the answer is pretty much “no.” Still, it was an important enough question that CNN figured it was worth looking into, especially since Kinder and Gentler Klan leader Frank Ancona politely volunteered to share his message of nonviolent white supremacy with the network.

Virginia Ku Klux Klan Tired Of Being So Misunderstood

The KKK just wants to be understood a bit better, as indicated by flyers they’ve left on people’s driveways in Chesterfield County, Virginia. You see, a lot of people may have misconceptions about the Klan, but those are just sadly outdated stereotypes, say the flyers, which insist the group is nonviolent, definitely not a hate group, and not “enemies of the colored and mongrel races.” See how much better things can be when you put aside your misconceptions like that?

Sundays With The Christianists: American History Textbooks For Red-Scared Homeschoolers

We hope some of you Wonkettarians are into Jazz Age cosplay, because we’re going to be spending a few weeks in the 1920s as played out in our rightwing Christian textbooks. As we saw last week,our textbooks are pretty accurate and unproblematic when they have a real war to talk about — plenty of dakka-dakka to keep the editors busy, maybe, so they didn’t bother dragging God onto the literal battlefields of WWI. Once the Great War ended, the cultural and economic changes that followed give the editors plenty of material to see as part of a spiritual battle for America — and of course a lot of our current kerfuffles really got rolling then (for instance, the very term “fundamentalist” was coined in 1920). And while we’ll get to flappers and flivvers and monkey trials in the next couple weeks, for today we’ll stick to our textbooks’ coverage of the surge of nativism that erupted into the Red Scare and the 1920s resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan. Needless to say, it’s only the wild-eyed radicals with weird foreign names that ended up getting booted out of the country.

Sundays With The Christianists: American History Textbooks For Unreconstructed Homeschoolers

Now that we’ve got the Civil War out of the way, our Christian-school textbooks almost seem to settle down and relax for a bit. They had a lot of ideological axe-grinding to do in discussing the causes of the Civil War, and there’s certainly a fair bit of that left over for Reconstruction, but for the most part, their coverage of the era seems fairly conventional. Needless to say, we’ll focus on the weird stuff. And as usual, our 8th-grade textbook, America: Land I Love (A Beka 1994), is happy to provide some weird. Both Land I Love and our 11th/12th-grade text form Bob Jones University Press, United States History for Christian Schools, portray Abraham Lincoln as wanting a more conciliatory policy toward the former Confederate states than the Radical Republicans in Congress, who largely wanted punitive policies. But Land I Love goes a step further and decides this would be a great opportunity to recast Lincoln as a kind of proto Ronald Reagan — discussing the postwar Freedmen’ Bureau, the book insists: Lincoln believed that government should do only what people cannot do for themselves. Local churches, businessmen, and farmers knew what was best for their own communities. Having been a part of township and county government, President Lincoln wanted most decisions to be made at the local level. We should perhaps be grateful that the authors don’t also have Lincoln announcing, “Government is not the solution to our problem; government IS the problem.” Read more on Sundays With The Christianists: American History Textbooks For Unreconstructed Homeschoolers…

South Carolina Politician Joined The Klan For A While, Wasn’t Super Into It

You know how it goes: you’re young, you’re questioning a lot of things, you’re working as a sheriff’s deputy in South Carolina, and you’re open to some “out there” ideas! Why not experiment with eastern religions? Why not drop some acid? Why not join the Ku Klux Klan? That’s the sort of thing that might come back to haunt you, though, if you later grow up and become a county councilman. Or not, we guess? Eddie Moore’s local political career seemed to be going OK until he had to testify under oath in a lawsuit between the county and its former administrator (side note: this lawsuit is almost certain full of vicious recriminations, we bet it makes for good local drama), which apparently resulted in some awkward Klan-related questions. Why did Moore eventually leave this racist terror group? Was it because he realized that its hatred was a cancer eating away at American society? Or was it because it was boring and lame?

Anti-Gay Group Leader Frothing Over ‘Hate Group’ Label Was Totally Gay-Married To David Duke

Tony Perkins, the head of the extreme anti-gay hate group the Family Research Council, says the Southern Poverty Law Center has blood on its hands after a pro-gay crazy guy came to the FRC’s DC office and tried to shoot up all the Christianists. Why is this the SPLC’s fault? Because the SPLC has been tracking the FRC as a “hate group” for years, mostly because they keep saying gay people should die, and according to Tony Perkins, this gave “license” to said crazy dude to murder them. Many very serious thinkers in the mainstream media have agreed with Perkins (this time only) because how on earth could the SPLC lump in “mainstream conservatives” like the Family Research Council with such luminous dignitaries as former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard (and now “mainstream conservative” himself!) David Duke? Oh, well, quite easily, as it turns out, seeing as how Tony Perkins and David Duke are basically doing sex in each other’s bottoms every time their eyes meet.
